Not listening to music is like stopping breathing for me. Sometimes I like a song so much that I have to put it in repeat for hours. I think the situation, thoughts or ambience of each song won't let me listen to another. It simply doesn't match to what I am listening to at the time. So....repeat please! Anyone else with the same "problem" ????

I love music and when I was younger I would probably be able to repeat songs over and over but generally I would repeat albums, that way it was a sequence of songs. Now, even if a song repeats a few times during the day it may start to annoy me. I am always fascinated by musicians who have to repeat songs over and over and over. I wonder if they ever get bored. There are a couple of songs that I can barely stand because I had friends who would have the autorepeat on when they liked a song. I think everyone enjoys music in different ways so have fun.

My best friend is a musician. I know that he gets bored playing them. He has to do it two nights every week. He is playing with a singer that just released a CD, but they have been promoting the songs for years. Now he can't even listen to these songs on the radio. Playing them is even worse. That goes for me too. I've been supporting the band for years too.

Thanks for the that, and that gives a totally different outlook of the life of a musician. It is not all parties and fun. I can just imagine if the songs become huge hits and they have to play them for years over and over again. I suspect after a while they are dulled to the effect of the song. Hope his album sells well.

Whenever I download a new song from the internet, I will always have it on repeat for a little while because it allows me to enjoy it a lot and see just how wonderful the new song is. The only problem is that sometimes, when you've listened to one song for a lot of time, you can get bored of it and therefore not like it anymore. It is a great shame when this happens because they're often very good songs that we just can't bear to listen to anymore because of the fact that they have been so overplayed during the short time that we have had them for.

I also love listening to music all over again. Its so funny because my sister keeps telling me that she got so irritated already everytime she hears the same music that I used to play every time she's around. I respect her for that though. So whenever I am alone.. I do this. It's like I want to familiarize the song that's why I m so fond of doing so..

Well, I do that too sometimes but I don't think I'd have the song on repeat for hours on end. Maybe play it four or five times but after a while I have to move on to a different song. Although I might come back to it later for another little marathon. If I listen to the same song over and over too long the words start jumbling together and it gets to the point where I don't have a clue to what I'm actually listening too.

I can't survive without music either! I do everything with the radio from eating to studying to exercising! I need something pumping through my ears in order to concentrate. I need music to even study! The radio is always on almost 24/7, when you walk pass my house you will always hear music playing inside. On the computer, I need music too so I play music from my computer. But even when I do like a song very much, I wouldn't put it on repeat because after a while I won't like it anymore so I tend to go through my music list, listening to different songs each time. I don't like listening to the same thing over and over again.
